It can now read two fingerprints at once
Together with the announcement of the Snapdragon 765, 765G, and 865 processors, Qualcomm also announced the second-generation of its ultrasonic in-display scanner. Called the 3D Sonic Max, Qualcomm’s new solution aims to resolve all issues with the original 3D Sonic Sensor (which first came out with the Samsung Galaxy S10) by being 17 times bigger than its predecessor and having the ability to authenticate two fingerprints at once.
By covering a bigger area compared to the original 3D Sonic Sensor, the 3D Sonic Max aims to offer improved security. In fact, Qualcomm claims a 1 in a million accuracy rate for the 3D Sonic Max—which is at par with Apple’s FaceID.
